What influences you?
When I started my career, Sep 2019, a local Newcastle woman Megan Core was my biggest influence. I saw her performing everywhere and she saturated the market with gigs and content and tunes, she sure can hustle when she wants to. I wanted to do the same and to be playing around town 4 times a week like her. I guess I could see similarities between us, as we are the same age, and I could see myself in her position one day (if I worked hard enough) and that's why I enjoyed following her journey. I could also actually chat to her and ask her questions about her influences etc. because she took the time of day to reply to me. I don't think starting out as a musician, it's right to compare yourself to big artists like Sia or Delta Goodrem because they are in a different realm, with lots of $$$. Starting out, you gotta look local and revel in the journey as there's so many fun things to achieve when you're a tiny fish in this big fish world.
What Motivates you as an Artist? 
I used to be a very anxious person, having panic attacks all the time, probably because I was super lost and unstable. Before music, I was doing a politics degree and I learnt a lot, although, I found it depressing. I knew I had to change my life and so I chose to start doing music full time as I have always loved singing and playing instruments. It makes me happy and it's a magical positive energy which brings everyone together. Many of my songs that I write are political and I can't help but bring what I learnt in the past into my life today as humankind have huge issues that we need to talk about and need to be aware of.
What are you working on at the moment?
I'm working on releasing my first single called "Golden Times"! Everything is pretty much ready, I just need to decide on a date and go from there!
What does the theme 'United' mean to you?
